Collection Braeval - Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Braeval Distillery (formerly known as Braes of Glenlivet) was one of the youngest distilleries in Scotland, having been built in 1973. Originally known as the Braes of Glenlivet, she changed her name to Braeval to avoid confusion with her more famous neighbor.

The site was allegedly chosen by Seagram - then still in search of The Glenlivet - for the quality of the water. It is famous that the first mashing took place before the distillery roof was covered because the chairman came from Canada to inspect his new baby.

It was one of the first fully automated distilleries in Scotland and one of the first to house all equipment in a single open space. Although it has a pagoda roof, it has never been malted.

It became part of the Pernod Ricard portfolio when the company acquired Seagram's Scotch whiskey division in 2000. The following year the distillery was mothballed by the new owner for six years. Now it's back in full production.
